Updates from the Principal

August 27, 2021

Dear Kent Primary School Families,

I hope that this letter finds you all well, relaxing and enjoying the summer with your friends and family. While I have enjoyed the summer break, I am looking forward to welcoming all of you back to KPS and beginning another successful year! On behalf of the faculty and staff, I would like to extend a warm welcome to those families that are new to our school. I am confident that you will come to truly love our exceptional school community as much as I do!

Our Custodial, Building and Grounds, and Maintenance staff have been hard at work to prepare the building for the students’ return. The building is nearly prepared for their arrival, and I’m sure that you’ll be as pleased as I am regarding the level of pride these men and women take in their work. Their efforts provide an inviting environment for the children to do their best thinking and learning!

As a reminder, the first full day of school for grades 1-4 will be on Thursday, September 2nd. The name of your child’s teacher, as well as the time and location of the morning and afternoon bus stops, can be found on the Home Access Center. For those parents that drive their children to school, you may begin dropping your children off at 8:50 AM. Please do not arrive early because there are no staff members on duty to supervise the children. For those of you picking your child up at the end of the day, you can begin arriving at 3:10 PM.

Kindergarten students will have a modified day on September 2nd. Kindergarten students should NOT ride the bus to school on this day. Parents and Kindergarten students should arrive together at 9:30 AM. The students will meet with their teachers to see their classroom, participate in brief activities, and then go for a short bus ride. The parents will meet with me for a Q & A period. At approximately 10:30 AM, the Kindergarten students will leave the building with their parents. The first full day of school for Kindergarten students will be Friday, September 3rd.

Finally, I would like to direct your attention to the CCSD website (www.carmelschools.org) for the most current information regarding our return to school plan this year. The district home page contains the most current information I have available for this year’s reopening. You will find this information under the section titled, “Update on Fall Reopening Guidance.”

Again, I am looking forward to welcoming you back to a positive and productive school year. In the meantime, enjoy the remainder of summer with your family and friends. I’ll look forward to seeing you soon on September 2, 2021. Be happy and be well!

Sincerely,

Daniel J. Brown, Principal

Kent Primary School Mission Statement

We are a community that is dedicated to developing and inspiring children to be their best selves in all aspects of their lives.

Who We Are:
We are a cohesive community of professionals with a strong sense of family that possess, celebrate and share our unique and individual strengths. We share a common focus to help, facilitate and encourage young minds to grow and fulfill their potential. As facilitators of learning, we utilize a multitude of resources to model and promote these desired outcomes. A strong cohesive community.

What We Do:
As an academic institution we contribute to the development of minds through inspiring children to create and pursue their own goals and objectives. We accomplish this by creating a welcoming, nurturing and trusting environment for all that empowers children to work alongside their peers, regardless of limitations, ultimately becoming independent lifelong learners.  Foster personal and academic growth.

Who We Do It For:
Our service is focused on the children who will develop a solid foundation of skills, knowledge and values, maximizing their individual potential along the way. This will in turn contribute to the perpetual improvement of society. Our children.

Why We Do It:
As we practice our deep commitment to learning, we accept the roles we fulfill because we understand that children require a safe, positive environment in which to develop into self-motivated and socially appropriate adults. We realize that fulfilling these responsibilities has an even greater benefit to all of us as a growing and ever evolving global community. To inspire children to be their best in all aspects of their lives
